REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BigBand Networks, Inc., (NASDAQ: BBND), the pioneer and deployment leader in switched digital video (SDV), today announced that it has reached a milestone for SDV deployment in Motorola set-top-box environments. The company is in the process of deploying across three Motorola cable systems with two different cable operators that collectively pass more than 1 million households.
“Operators are actively deploying our SDV solution in Motorola systems,” said Biren Sood, BigBand’s vice president and general manager of cable video. “SDV continues to be the most cost-efficient way to expand HDTV in any set-top environment; approximately one fourth the cost of an immediate all-digital migration according to our calculations.”
